      I have the Sony FX1000 and I’m loving it so far. Search on youtube for Sony FX1000 and you will find helpful hints to help you in your selection. One being it’s use in low light situations, which are great. I just recently shot a basketball game in a gym and the footage was great. Not like my old 3CCR $800 Panasonic camera that would always go out of focus when it hits the lights and 10X zoom. However, at the time, I thought my 3CCD camera was great, other than the out of focus issues I had to deal with, the colors were fantastic.With thenew camera I don’t have those problems. I’m shoting the games at 30P and the footage looks great in HD. Now I just usemy old camera as a backup.

      This guy from B&H Photo has done an excellent job explain the features of the Sony Z5U. The big brother of the Sony FX1000.

      And this guy covers all you need to know about the Canon XHA1 Camera. Good tips for any camera users and what the functions are for.

      Ok, If I am not mistaken you are asking more about the 150 than the FX, no?

      Everything I have heard about it says it’s a very good camera. It has a nice weight and two XLR inputs so you can get pro quality stuff without wearing out your arm in an all-day shoot. I have heard that the low-light is not that great on it, but I haven’t seen this first hand so take that for what you will. Personaly I am looking to purchase one of these myself because Panasonic has really stepped up their game with their latest batch of cams.

      I will warn that AVCHD is a bit tricky if you are not prepared for it, but otherwise I think the quality will hold up with the 1000
